Flyaway Indoor Skydiving is a 12-foot (3.7m) privately-owned wind tunnel located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It is the only indoor skydiving location in Tennessee, so it is the closest indoor skydiving to Nashville. Flyaway is the second-oldest wind tunnel in the United States, right behind Vegas Indoor Skydiving in Las Vegas, Nevada. Both tunnels opened one after the other, in 1982.
Like Vegas Indoor Skydiving, this tunnel is significantly older than many of the models open today, and consequently, the wind speed is much lower, but it is an excellent location for beginner flyers. Unlike most modern wind tunnels, which feature “wall-to-wall” columns of air, there is a small padded ring around the edge of the tunnel (outside the column of air), where participants and instructors can stand while not flying, but still be right next to the action!
Another unique feature of Flyaway is that unlike most tunnels, which provide two-flight packages, Flyaway offers single-flight packages, which run at $37.95 as of May 2022.
